Default 2019 Hot Rod Power Tour

I am seeing if anyone else is going. It starts in Charlotte this year and ends in Norwalk, OH. I am taking my 72 vert and having my brother ride shotgun. I cant wait. I added a Tremec 5 speed this year to help on the MPG and the RPM's. Packing is going to be tight. I am taking the spare tire instead of using tub for storage. Heading out on Friday, June 7.

Hey Joey-

YES- we are doing it again this year!!!

My first one was in 2005 and have been doing them ever since. AND the wife and I actually got MARRIED on the 2016 Power Tour- on stage in Gonzales LA!!!

I've met many members from the Forum in the past- feel free to shoot me an email richard454 at comcast dot net and we can swap phone numbers if you wanna met up- or need a helping hand with your car.

This year we are taking the wife's 2016 Mustang- as the Vette is a little cramped and not that comfortable- and she is having her knee replaced in a couple days!!!

We are headed up Frday morning and will stop by while in Charlotte and meet up with fellow forum member Dub and run by the brand new Mustang museum. Also corresponded with 73LS1 "Charlie"- and meet up with him in Indy.

For those not in the know- here's the stops- it's well worth the trip to a tleast check out one of the venue if you can't do the tour. Each stop is an incredible car show with several thousand cars plus the vendor's booths.
  • KICKOFF on Saturday, June 8: zMAX Dragway in Concord, NC
  • Sunday, June 9: Martinsville, VA (location TBA)
  • Monday, June 10: Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, TN*
  • Tuesday, June 11: Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, KY*
  • Wednesday, June 12: Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, IN
  • Thursday, June 13: Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, IN*
  • FINALE on Friday, June 14: Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH
Richaed


The wedding pictures!!!

I read today that the Martinsville stop will be at the Martinsville Speedway. I might have to make a day trip from central VA.

My wife and I have down the Pour Tour a few times and its great. The Concord venue is great. If you are able to get rooms just north of the drag strip it's great for wandering around after dinner and checking out all the cars.

Does your car have a luggage rack? My 77 coupe has 1 and I made great use of it. I picked up 2 plastic Zip Loc containers with weather-tight seals. They fit on the luggage rack with room between them to access the fuel door without the need to remove them. I simply used bungee cords to hold them in place. The only time I removed them was when I was parked overnight. I stored my T-Tops inside of the car.

These are the only pictures that I have with the totes in place. They would have blocked my view using a rear view mirror on the windshield, but my car doesn't have one anyway.

No luggage rack so we are definitely packing light. I think everything is going to fit. Buying t shirts at each stop too to wear the next day.
